Mid-America Speedway News Issue: 1.19 

Putting a race schedule together is never easy, and it seems to have gotten more complicated over the past few seasons with the rise in popularity of Flat track, Speedway and Quad racing over the past few years.  With that said, lets talk more about the upcoming 2019 season...

As always, we are going to kick of the season on the last Saturday in April with our Super Sr. 60+ Night on April 27th.  The winner of the class will receive a $100 bonus, and the oldest rider starting the main event will receive $50.  If this event is rained off, we have Saturday May 4th as the rain date.  We will race on either April 27th, or May 4th, but not both.  

After an approximate one month break, the season takes off in full swing with $250 going to the winning bike owner in the youth 80-200 class on June 1st, and we finish up the month of June on the 8th with a $100 bonus going to the winner of the Senior 50+ Class.

Racing resumes on 7/13 with $500 going to the winning bike owner of the 65cc Class.  The purse money is being put up by Tear It Up Racing, Cycle Trucking, and Mid-America Speedway.  While we are talking about Cycle Trucking, and Tear It Up Racing, they are also putting up money the following week on 7/20 where it will pay $400 to the winning bike owner in the 50cc Chain Class, and $150 to the winning bike owner in the 50cc Shaft Class.

August 2nd and 3rd is our AMA Vintage National Dirt Track National weekend.  Friday, August 2nd is vintage only, and Saturday, August 3rd in vintage and all of the Mid-America Classes.  August 24th is our Quad Shootout with $1000 going to the winner of the Open Quad Class, and once again Tear It up racing is putting up $300 to win the Youth Quad Class.  We round out the month of August on the 31st, with a $100 bonus going to the winner of Vet 30+.

September starts off a little different for Mid-America in that we are hosting a triple-header of the Midwest Extreme Dirt Track National Series.  Friday, September 6th will see action on the oval, and then on Saturday the 7th, and Sunday the 8th the quads will take to the TT track.  Next on the schedule is Vintage Heavy Night on September 21st with $100 (per cylinder) going to the winner of the Vintage Heavy Class.  Our final event of the month will see the winner of the 250 Money class taking home $500 for their efforts on the 28th.

October is another unique month in that the Mid-America crew is promoting two nights of racing at Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, IN on Saturday, October 12th and Sunday the 13th.  Both nights will feature the regular Mid-America classes and will also be the final two rounds of the 2019 AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Series.  October 19th is Vintage Light Night, with a $100 bonus being awarded to the winner of the Vintage Light Class.  The season ends the following week on October 26th with our 11th annual Halloween race.  The winner of the Open Bike class will receive $500 for their efforts. 

Upcoming Ice Races
The Extreme International Ice Racing Series will be in Danville, IL next Friday, February 22nd.  The series runs several classes from youth and adult flat track, quad and Speedway.  If you would like more information, please call us at 317.871.4392 and we can put you in touch with the promoter.

About Mid-America Speedway

Located inside Indianapolis' Marion County Fairgrounds, Mid-America Speedway is excited to be entering our 12th season in 2019.  Constructed in early 2008, and growing with each event, Mid-America is consistently in national headlines as the  Midwest's premier short track and renowned for the top pro riders that hone their skills on a regular basis.  Year over year promotion and  word of mouth have gotten the word out resulting in both spectator and rider attendance driving upward, up twenty five percent since 2010.
